    2001 is probably the least fascinating film ever produced – oh, wait – no. I forgot ‘Mr and Mrs Smith’

    It’s a joke about how for kids the year 2001 is long enough ago that it feels like history to them.

    Oh, I wouldn’t say “2001” isn’t fascinating. Quite the contrary. But I learned long ago that the world is made up of two kinds of people: those who love “2001”, and those who hate it … and the less loving half is dominated by people who, among other things, prefer to fast-forward through the landscape scenes and dialogue of “The Lord Of The Rings” to get to the gory action bits.

    Other than that, what RanaRavens said :)

    If back in 1963 (when I was 11) when both we and the Russians were setting new space exploration milestones almost every day, someone told me that in 50 years manned space flight would have gone no farther than the moon and that we hadn’t even been back to the moon for almost 40 years, I would have said they were crazy. (sigh)

    I remember when Orwell’s “1984” was in the far distant future. (The “2001: A Space Odyssey” sequel was called “2010”. Recent history.)

    Thank you both – I understood the joke, I just have never understood the cult status of ‘2001’ (and inshadowz – you are right, I can’t be bothered with the interminable trudging through snow/ over mountains/ across rivers etc etc etc that fills the “Ring” trilogy . . . )

    I used to to subscribe to Discover and Omni magazines, and half kidded that by the time I got aroung to reading them they’d be history magazines.

    2001 is a tough history especially at 9/11.

    It’s like I always say: “Nostalgia ain’t what it used to be.”

    What about Robert A Heinlien’s “Door Into Summer”? 1972 was a generation away at time the story started.
